Bengals Invite Texas Tech Defensive Lineman Ra'Jon Henley To Camp This Weekend

The Cincinnati Bengals will be holding rookie minicamp this weekend, bringing in all of their draft picks and their college free agents into town for a workout. However, the Bengals typically invite players that didn't wasn't drafted or signed by another team to join them at camp. Sometimes, if the player is impressive enough, the Bengals will sign him and he'll fight for a roster spot on the team.

One of those guys is Texas Tech's defensive lineman Ra'Jon Henley, according to

“I’m definitely going to make up for it,’’ he said. “I’m going to showcase my talent, show them what I have.’’

The 6-foot-3, 272-pound Henley was part of the Red Raiders’ rotation at defensive tackle each of the last four years. Though not certain, he said he’s under the impression the Bengals will work him out at defensive end.

“A lot of guys that do get drafted don’t make the team,’’ Henley said. “To me, it’s all about what you do when you get there. I know my injury my junior year kind of held me back, and my senior year I had an injury that kind of held me back. I’m happy to be at a minicamp somewhere.’’
